The old days of doing as you please,slacking off just enough to get by,and giving lip to the job foremen are gone. Until the economy turns around 100% and they are begging you to work, better suck it up and look for something else to feed your family. We have degreed people out there flippin' burgers,mowing grass,and cleaning poolIs. Knock,Knock, Hello?
hey...they still accept my union dues, and how the hell do you think you know anything about me? I have never been late a single day of my life. In 30 years I may have taken 2 sick days, and I have always respected the boss man. I would like you to walk in our shoes, but I really wouldnt wish this nightmare on my worst enemy. You however, have it all wrong. And also,i HAVE probably applied to 60-70 other jobs paying far less than I was making. I cant even get an interview for a crappy job, and I would except one if I did.

There are lots of us still waiting for work. They hire new apprentices to have cheaper labor. Your union gets dues whether you work or not. Crawl up their butts and let your voice be heard. Make them take a stand. That's what they are paid for.
